The Golden Shore: California’s Love Affair with the Sea. From the first human settlements to the latest marine explorations, The Golden Shore tells the tale of the history, culture, and changing nature of California’s coasts and ocean. Helvarg takes the reader on a journey along the state’s 1,100-mile Pacific coastline and out into its whale-, seal-, and shark-rich offshore seamounts, rock isles, and kelp forests. Part history, part travelogue, part love letter, The Golden Shore captures the spirit of the California coast and its mythic place in American culture. As Kindle | More...

50 Ways to Save the Ocean. The oceans are so vast that it’s easy to feel powerless to protect them. 50 Ways focuses on practical, easily implemented actions to protect and conserve this vital resource. It addresses daily choices that affect the ocean's health: What fish should and should not be eaten; How and where to vacation; How to protect local water tables; How to support local marine education. It also looks at what can be done about toxic pollutant runoff, protecting wetlands and sanctuaries, stopping oil rigs off shore, saving reef environments, and replenishing fish reserves.

Rescue Warriors: The U.S. Coast Guard, America's Forgotten Heroes. After two years with the men and women of the Coast Guard, from the halls of their academy, to the frigid, storm-tossed waters of Alaska’s Bering Sea, to the northern Persian Gulf, Helvarg gives us a look into their daily lives. Filled with a salty maritime mix of altruism and adrenaline, as well as dozens of death-defying rescues at sea and on hurricane-ravaged shores. Explains why and how the Coast Guard needs to change in the face of a melting Arctic and other threats, from climate change and oil spills to piracy and pandemics. As Kindle | More…

The War Against the Greens. A reign of violence and intimidation, including arson, bombings, rape, assault and even murder has been unleashed against environmentalists by proponents of the “Wise Use” movement. This expose rips the veneer off this right-wing backlash that stretches from armed militias to the halls of Congress, exposing the corporations and fringe groups who have set out to destroy America's environmental protections. “Helvarg demolishes the fiction that anti-environmentalism is a grassroots movement by demonstrating its massive corporate underpinnings,” writes Publishers Weekly.

Blue Frontier: Dispatches from America's Ocean Wilderness. A panoramic chronicle of America's maritime history and the challenges that our coastal and marine environments face today. Profiles the growing efforts by coastal citizens and local governments to restore and protect the health of our oceans in the face of development along our coasts. Demonstrating how national policymaking on the oceans is enmeshed in a welter of competing jurisdictions, Blue Frontier argues for strong omnibus legislation including the creation of truly protected marine wilderness reserves.

Saved By the Sea: A Love Story With Fish. From bodysurfing in Central American war zones, diving barrier reefs with his tragically fated love, Nancy, or being bumped by a whale off Antarctica, David Helvarg has lived a life often as endangered as the ocean he now works to protect. This eloquent and honestly told tale of the changes in one man's journey and the world's ocean over the last half-century is also a profound, startling, and sometimes surprisingly funny reflection on the state of our seas and the intimate ways in which our lives are all linked to the natural world around us.
